I cannot tell you how very loved I feel right now. Yesterday I had my friend shower. We had a better turn out than my family shower. Everyone who showed up was so lovely. The girls worked so hard on the shower. I wish I had pictures because everything was awesome. I collect pigs so they did a little piggy theme. There were pink balloons decorated like pig faces for decorations. The cake was pigs playing in a mud puddle. The veggies were cucumber pig snouts and carrot pig hooves. We also had bacon crack and pulled pork sammies. The favors were bottles of nail polish with a momma and baby pig charm and little tag that said “pamper your piggies”.
We played a bunch of fun games. And everyone filled out wishes for Amelia then they put them into a binder for me to take home. I held back tears when I saw the front of the binder…a pig with balloons tied around her so she could fly and it said “Dreams Do Come True!”
I feel so blessed to have made it this far. I’m pregnant after 8 years of TTC. I’m feeling my gorgeous girl move in my tummy as I type this. I’m so in love with her. My husband can’t keep his hands off my belly. He’s constantly rubbing it, kissing it, talking to Amelia, or reading to her. She loves her daddy’s voice. She wiggle dances while he talks to her. In about 8 more weeks I’ll get to hold my baby girl and kiss her little face. It’s still unbelievable to me that I beat infertility. And I have so many great friends, both in person and in this community, who love my baby girl and me. I’ve always been sure of this but I have been reminded again that family has nothing to do with blood.
Be well friends! I love you all very much!
